Abstract

This guide is designed for the teacher and the amateur collector. It describes the rock units and fossils in eastern Iowa, lists a series of collecting localities, and presents a background of the geologic history of the state in order to make fossil collecting more meaningful. Fossils are remains of organisms that lived within an environment, and it is more meaningful to view them within the context of earth history than as isolated objects in a collection.
